  1. Alfie got 18 in the premier League over the course of 3 years which is pretty impressive for a defensive minded player. Erling will smash that in a few weeks time
  2. There's the Fantastic Nordic Meat Shield scoring again
  3. Keeping all our players in the box can tempt the other team to push further up, leaving gaps for quicker players to break...guys like Omeonga, Anderson, Bahamboula can use their pace to chase down the clearance
  4. I genuinely think it's something the modern day footballer is taught. If they all claim and react as if the ball is dead then they will get more of the tight decisions. Marginal gains and all that
  5. That's where the mistake has been made, nothing to do with VAR. The officials have taken it upon themselves to remove VAR from the equation in that instance
  6. I'm saying they didn't lead with it because it was the merseyside derby like our highlights package pander to the OF. Even though it was a great game to watch there were better games on the day that they lead with. The post I was quoting suggested that the merseyside derby was further down the pecking order because it wasn't a good game. I was merely stating that it WAS a good game to watch
  7. My band played at a music festival that over 10,000 people attended. We probably played to a couple of thousand for our set. One of my other bands performed in the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow to a couple of thousand too.
  8. I quite like him This is probably why I believe the whistle had gone before the goal was scored so they can't check VAR
  9. The more impressive thing is, the merseyside derby was actually a cracking game and still didn't get lead billing. Both sides had plenty of chances and it was end to end at times. Really wouldn't have been an issue to have it on first except for the fact there were goals in most other matches. The glasgow derby was a bit of a shite game in all honesty although there were 4 goals scored.
  10. Fantastic performance, Craig Gordon kept hearts in that with some huge saves. Montano was superb, Nouble led the line well, Stephen Kelly looked bright when he came on...not a poor performer in a Livi shirt
  11. Can't decide if we're going for Shamal Devlin Kelly Ayo Montano Omeonga Holt Penrice Pittman Goncalves Nouble or Shamal Devlin Kelly Ayo Penrice Omeonga Pittman Holt Nouble Goncalves Montano
  12. Shout for a red card for VVD there, straight leg, studs up and over the ball
  13. Did that clip off the defenders foot before going to Coady? If so isn't that a goal these days?
  14. Yeah Ke. Jacobs and Ky Jacobs so I'd imagine it'll be Se. Kelly and St. Kelly....or Big Kelly and Wee Kelly
  15. Speaking to a few rangers supporting pals they say his free kicks are pretty impressive. He's also one for a long range shot which is something we don't have a lot of. Found a video of a belter of a free kick he scored against Denmark U-21s https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=694552764959444
  16. I don't get the mega love in for Mullin. He's got a fantastic delivery but his application during games can be questionable. More often than not, in his second spell, he went missing in games. If special teams was a thing in football then I'd be all for him staying to bring him on for set pieces. I reckon his level is the championship where, unsurprisingly, he played his best football for us
  17. Talk of Konovalov on the way out. Wasn't in the squad last night and there's apparently been interest.
  18. I had written the exact same thing but thought I was just rambling in my post
  19. Fitzwater's suspension last night was due to his bookings in the group stages of the cup. He hasn't served his league suspension yet. I know Cancar had a bad game against Aberdeen but who didn't? I'd like to see Ayo and Cancar as the CB pairing. I'd also go the other way with Goncalves and Guthrie. Start Guthrie and hope he can ragdoll the defence enough with his physicality and bring Goncalves on later where his lack of fitness would be up against a tired defence...ideally. George Devlin Ayo Cancar Montano Omeonga Pittman Kelly Bahamboula Guthrie Nouble Holt has looked off the pace recently but so have a few others. I was torn between dropping Holt or Pitts but Pitts can always cause issues running from deep, especially if Bahamboula and Nouble can draw the CBs wider and create space for him
  20. It's scary that the best Left Back in the league is actually a Right Back playing out of position. Just imagine the nausea inducing love fest if he was English Not just that, he went into that game having only played 40 minutes in pre-season
  21. Other than the rangers game, Nouble's best performances have been on the wing. I get he's been playing centrally due to Anderson not being fit but we now have Guthrie who can take up that number 9 role and allow Bahamboula and Nouble to be the wide men where their height would give the opposition more issues. If the opposition were to try to double up on them out wide, it would either require the CBs to push wider and leave gaps for Guthrie/Anderson/Pittman to exploit or would pin back their wingers which allows Montano/Devlin to bomb further forward with less of a worry on counter attacks
